EDUCATION

Project Gateway is committed to the education and training of children, young people and adults who would otherwise not have access to affordable, quality resources.

Gateway Christian School currently has more than 550 children from Grade R up to Grade 7. The school is well resourced and provides a good quality education for local children. For orphaned and vulnerable children, or those with other special circumstances, we also have a boarding facility.

In addition to formal education for children at Gateway Christian School, local people have the opportunity to enrol at the Gateway School of Fashion, an initiative originally set up in association with UK designer Karen Millen OBE, the University for Creative Arts in the UK, and HOPE-HIV. Now in its eighth year, the Fashion school has evolved into a well respected and sought after training centre.

We are also able to offer computer literacy classes at our computer training centre. Starting with a donation of ten laptops from a church in the UK, we have so far trained more than 200 people in basic computer literacy.

Our most recent empowerment project has been the setting up of our Crafters Training and Mentorship scheme, which trains our crafters in basic business skills.
